Ridgefield Conservatory of Dance (RCD) has a whole new Nutcracker production this year, with brand new choreography by Mary Beth Hansohn who has been teaching ballet at RCD since 2012 and debuts her role as Nutcracker Director.

This is RCD’s first live performance in over a year due to the pandemic.

Starring as the Dew Drop fairy is Katie Burns of Ridgefield. Ridgefielder Angie Stofka dazzles as Snow Queen, a role she shares with Abigail Stobin of North Salem. 

Other local dancers starring in the popular holiday production include Snow King Jamie Ellin of South Salem, Sugarplum Fairy Serena Trickel of Brewster and Hailey Brown of Katonah. 

Performances will be held at The Ridgefield Playhouse on December 10, 11, and 12, continuing the annual tradition of holiday festivity, in accordance with CDC guidelines. Please note that audience members are asked to wear masks.
